Lineside Poles.

When I have been in N&W signalled territory, and seen it in photos, on top of
each pole is a steel bracket about two or three feet high with about a forty
degree angle where it is fastened to the pole with a single insulator on
top of
the bracket. My question. Is this line, strung from pole to pole, a
ground, a common hot wire, or is it the code line for the lineside signals?
